Water has emerged as a resource of strategic importance because of its increasing demand in agriculture, domestic and industrial uses. Its adequate and continuous supply is essential to provide stability in food production and self-sufficiency to societies (GWC 2013). Increased demand for water has stimulated development of groundwater supply. Groundwater has emerged as one of the principal source of water for irrigation in areas where surface (canal) irrigation is either insufficient or prohibitively expensive. Groundwater is a replenish able finite source. It is common pool resource and termed as a heritage for all to manage (Aggarwal et. al 2009 a & b).
